What To Expect When Recovering From A Breast Fat Transfer


It’s not uncommon for people to want to make changes to their body and for women, one of the popular changes they may want to make will be to their breasts. This is why breast implants are one of the most popular plastic surgeries. However, this may be too big of a commitment for some individuals leading them to learn more about other options such as a breast fat transfer in Miami.

About Breast fat transfer 

A breast fat transfer is a surgery that utilizes liposuction to enlarge the shape and size of the breasts. Liposuction involves the surgeon using a long thin tube called a cannula to remove fat from the body. Once the fat is successfully removed from the body, it’s harvested so the fat can easily be transferred to other parts of the body. Afterward, the fat is applied to the breasts. Because a Miami breast fat transfer uses natural fat, patients can expect to have natural-looking breasts. However, not everyone knows what to expect when recovering from the procedure.

What to expect from breast fat transfer

Patients will most likely experience some soreness in their breasts. This soreness should be slight due to the fact that the surgery doesn’t require large incisions. Because the incisions are small, most people are able to resume normal activities within a few days following the surgery. This doesn’t mean that patients should resort back to strenuous activity. Any heavy lifting or extensive exercise can be resumed a few weeks after the procedure. 

Patients may also experience some swelling and bruising but this should subside quickly. Though the pain from the procedure will be slight, patients will still receive medication. The surgeon may prescribe mild prescriptions or suggest over-the-counter pain medication. 

Because every patient has different breasts, the recovery process may vary from patient to patient. It’s best for patients to follow the post-operative instructions they were given by their doctor.
